Megan Lind Persinger @meganthebookwrm

@annmrose What happens if an agent doesn't like the next book you write?
Replying to @meganthebookwrm

For me. My clients and I have already talked about next projects so this isn't an issue.
No need for them to spin their wheels IMO

elizabeth is not real @whenbethwrite

@annmrose What does “It’s not a fit for me” mean?
Replying to @whenbethwrite

It can mean anything from - I didn't connect to the voice to I already have something like this - it's really a catch all phrase, so not super helpful I know.

Savy Guthrie @SavyGuthrie

@annmrose I’m probably spending too much time analyzing query tracker, but why do agents skip around in their inbox? Are they looking for a particular genre? Does a title intrigue them?
Replying to @SavyGuthrie

There could be a lot of reasons. They are looking for certain things. They are holding on to look more closely at your project when they have more time to consider. There are some "easy" no's (like way out of word count my 300K word novel) to clear out.

Russell Epp-Leppel 💜💀 @leppeppel

@annmrose In my (admittedly limited) experience, creators and consumers alike love genre-blending, so why are the middlemen of producers and distributors so loathe to touch it!? 😮‍💨
Replying to @leppeppel

At the end of the day agents sell to publishers and if pubs aren't sure how to sell something that sits in the middle of things that makes it really hard for agents
Bookstores (the primary customer to publishers) only have so much shelf space. So it needs to firmly sit somewhere

Varsha Seshan @VarshaSeshan

@annmrose How long would you say it's appropriate to wait before following up on a full request?
Replying to @VarshaSeshan

Don’t be surprised though if after 3 months they haven’t gotten to it

Renea Wrights @ReneaWrights

@annmrose If an author had an amazing plot, characters, settings, etc, but their writing skill was just ok. Do you sign them & work w/then or tell them 2 invest in an editor?
Replying to @ReneaWrights

I think there is more nuance here than can just be answered by a blanketed yes or no. I’ve signed books that have needed little work, I’ve also signed books that needed heavy revision and have been able to sell both kinds. Each situation is different.

Sara Naveed @SaraNaveed

@annmrose Are you open to accepting manuscripts falling in the romance genre? Especially South Asian romance?
Replying to @SaraNaveed

Absolutely open to this.
Hot tip: I especially like it when the MCs have larger goals than just the romance but the romance still finds a way to happen ❤️

Mehr Husain @mfhusayn

@annmrose Why won't more agents take on South Asian writers? We write well. What's the problem? #AskAgent
Replying to @mfhusayn

Breaking down the systematic issues within publishing is absolutely something that should be discussed.
I can’t speak for other agents but I myself am very open to South Asian stories and would be happy to find them in my inbox.
